Total temperature


  • Wrapper around the fixed condition to set the static pressure from a definition of the total pressure
  • Applicable to the pressure field


The condition sets the temperature at the patch \( T_p \) based on a specification of the total temperature, \( T_0 \):

\[ T_p = \frac{T_0}{1 + \frac{\gamma - 1}{2 \gamma} \psi \mag{\u}^2} \]

The Field file entries:

    gamma           1.4;
    T0              uniform 800;

    // Optional entries
